Definition of Front

Forepart, eis opposed to the back or rear. Any side or face of a bu ilding is a front, although the word is more commonly usied to denote the entrance side. In re Mclnerney, 47 Wyo. 258, 34 P.2d 35, 43. As applied to a bare lot, it is that side of lot towards which, in ordinary circumstances, house, when built, will most likely face, and very general usage of building houses with their main entrance toward shorter street line results in common understanding that this is side intended when front of lot is refe rred to.
